How do I configure the text capturing?

The rules that tell Email Parser how to capture the text are set under the field settings. You need first to create a field and then select a capture method.

This task can be challenging and many times it requires a lot of trial and error. The usual process is as follows:

  1. Create a new field under a Parser.
  2. Select the Starts after… continues until… capture method
  3. Double click on the email source and select any of the emails you want to capture the text from.
  4. Go to the fields tab and copy the Body contents.
  5. Go back to the field you have just created and paste the text into the testing area.
  6. Play with the options until you find that the testing area output is what you expect.

For more complex parsing tasks you can try other methods like Regular expressions, XPath for capturing text in an HTML document or even scripting.
